Mountaineering

Sports Development

We are SUMC. We are a friendly bunch of people who love to climb, boulder and mountaineer all over the UK and beyond. We welcome all levels of ability, so if you're a hardened pro or a complete beginner, we'd love to meet you! With SUMC you join more than just a club, we're an extended family with returning alumni from all over the UK. Get climbing outside, with fortnightly weekend meets all over the UK and our annual Christmas trip abroad.

For plastic junkies, we organise weekly trips to indoor walls and training nights at the Uni bouldering wall. We also represent Team Southampton at climbing competitions. Socials are held every week and range from movie nights to Sumo suits to good old-fashioned pub crawls. Unofficially, our members get up to adventures year round, skiing in the Alps, bouldering in France, ice climbing in Norway, mountaineering in Peru, not to mention rock climbing almost every weekend.

Whatever gets you psyched, there’s the opportunity to do it with SUMC. Find out more at www.su-mc.org..
